    1. Thank you so much Francisco your words mean an awful lot as I admire your group and your music so much. Very kind my friend, thank you again sincerely. I donโ€™t use even a microphone I just put the computer on the counter and hit voice memo. Real high tech stuff. Love you guys. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜

      1. Thank you so very much my friend. Love to you and your sweetheart. Please send her my love. ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿฅฐ

    1. You sweetie thank you for your adorable comment and kindness. Such a lovely lady. Thank you Summer. Love you โค๏ธ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜˜Joni

  2. Wow! I loved this. You have so much more courage than I. I would love to do something like this. I have thought of reading the first chapter of my YA books and posting them. Before the Pandemic I did read a 10-minute excerpt from one of my books at a Bar/restaurant and it was a blast. If they invite me again, I have one ready to do.

    1. Oh I think you should go for it girl. Why not. You should read some excerpts on line. I love it when people do that. Go for it Brenda we are in our sunshine years!! Time to go for it. I bet you were great too. Thank you for your kind comment. We are in the process of getting our house ready to sell and move. We put an offer on a house and will know at 6 pm est. This is why I donโ€™t have any extra time right now. I bet
      You have a great voice. I have a raspy voice, which you can probably hear in my singing. Love you Brenda – go for it my
      Friend. โค๏ธ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿงšโ€โ™€๏ธ

  3. Hello dear Joni. Your voice made for Jazz. A lovely song. Jazz is my favorite. Been my muse for a few years now. Thank you for the amazing song.

    1. Thank you for listening John. I am so glad you liked it. I wrote a couple more verses but I didnโ€™t want to overdo it. I also love jazz my friend. You have one amazing week. Sending you flowers and lots of jazz. โค๏ธ love Joni

    1. You are so sweet. Thank you I felt a bit exposed but I use to write a lot of songs and I thought what the heck I am not getting any younger, just care less about those risky fun things I do for me. Thank you, your brilliant words on your post mean so much. Sending hugs love โค๏ธ Joni ( so glad it made your day) ๐Ÿ˜˜

      1. EXACTLY! why can’t we try/do the things that are creative? Uplifting? Challenging? ๐Ÿ™‚ and make others happy in the process!!!! You did a stunning job! I hope you do more.

      2. Thank you my friend! You are so sweet, now you have gone and made my day. Because I really didn’t have a childhood to speak of I am aging backwards. haha My husband is quite a bit younger than I am – over a decade, and honestly I got to experience all the fun things that I missed out on with him. We have been married soon 25 years and everyone said it would never last except one person I knew. So thanks again my friend, you are such a sweetheart. My husband also loves your work, we look at it together. xoxoxox Love ya Joni

      3. โค๏ธ it brings me joy to know that you share my work with your husband. Like you, I am experiencing things now that I never did. Let me be the first to wish you (EARLY) a wonderful and lovely happy anniversary.

      4. You are so thoughtful and that kindness is so appreciated. We were watching a movie โ€œThe Counselor,โ€ and my husband said oh Javier Bardem, has his hair like our friend the Chatter Master. We are both very big fans of his work and he has great hair really thick and he had it kinda the way you draw yours. It was so sweet. Caution we love this movie but a lot of crazy violence. Sending you buckets and buckets of love. โค๏ธ๐Ÿค—Joni

      5. I had to look him up. He is ADORABLE. And I love that he made you all think of my hair! ๐Ÿ˜ Tell your husband thank you!!!! ๐Ÿ˜

      6. I will. He wore his hair like that for the movie. I see woman with really super thick hair like yours that have the coolest hair cuts. Mine is super fine but I have a lot of it. When I get my body size back before COVID I may go really short again. I have put on ten lbs and I have a small frame. I love Penelope Cruz and she stars with her husband in this movie. Have an amazing week my friend. Love you ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜˜

    1. Thank you so much Kristian that is such a lovely comment and I am grateful for it. I appreciate that you actually listened and commented. What a treat, thank you. Love to you and your loved ones my friend. xoxoxo

  4. My dearest Joni. This was so mesmerizing. Your voice is so enchanting. So so melodious and beautiful. Gorgeous poem and gorgeous singing. Loved itโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธโ™ฅ๏ธ
    Lots of love and hugs๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒน

    1. Thank you dear Ishita for your very generous words, you are such a sweetie. Thank you my friend. Sending you love, hugs and lots of bright red balloons flying and filling up the sky.
      xoxoxoxo Love and hugs right back at you!

    1. Thank you Stuart and for the retweet. I am still logged into your site. We are getting our house ready to sell. What a lot of work. I need to catch up on your work my friend. Hugs

      1. You concentrate on the stuff that matters, Joni. It’s a real job preparing a house for the marketplace, as I know only too well. Fingers crossed all goes well for you.

      2. You are so thoughtful. Thank you Stuart. The decisions are overwhelming. We made an offer on one house but it was in a bidding war. We let it go. Hope you two are doing well. Sending my love. ๐ŸŒนโค๏ธโค๏ธJoni

  5. Joni! Joni! You have an amazing classy voice and style! Funny how I met you when talking with my soulful singer, Italian friend Linda. A-cappella or music, you are awesome! ๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ‘Œ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ๐ŸŽˆ

    1. Wow thank you so much my friend. I am truly flattered as I love all the incredible music posts that AOC provides along with the rich historical backgrounds of the artist. I wish I had more time to enjoy more. Thank you deeply for your super gracious comment. Sending lots of love and fresh brewed coffee. Hugs ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿฅฐ Joni

      1. Thank you so much, I am very flattered with your vast musical knowledge and history I believe in the industry. It means a lot. I just feel good writing a few verses (three for that song) sing one or two with the chorus and just have fun when no one is around. If I was a young thing again I probably would not have the nerve to do this. No one is shoving me up on a stage anymore when I was in the second grade and telling me to sing with guys who didn’t know anything about me. haha God bless them, they did it anyway and I didn’t know I was on the radio and they all ended up in the Grand Ole Opry. Those were crazy days. Anyway thank you for being so sweet and kind in your comments. I know you know the bez and I appreciate your comments. Have a great week. Traveling this week and currently in the mountains of NC in Asheville, NC. Have an amazing and blessed week my friend. Hugs xoxoxo

  6. Wow, Joni! That was beautiful, soulful, and a great treat to hear your voice! Bravo!!! I hope you will do more of this! Enjoy the rest of your weekend, I hope you got good news on the house! ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ’•

    1. You are so sweet Tiffany no we didnโ€™t get that house as a bidding war pursued but we are going to Asheville today to look at some other homes. Thank you for your kind words they mean a lot as I consider you to be also extremely talented. Sending love and hugs to you via in route to Asheville, NC. ๐Ÿค—โค๏ธ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ˜˜

  7. I love hearing you sing Joni. Your voice is sultry & jazzy & so clear. Thank you for the musical treat! Love you

    1. Hi sweetie itโ€™s so good to hear from you thank you for all your very kind and generous words as always. Thanks also and a big hug to Mark for all of his help too. We are on our way to Asheville to take a look at the house up close. You guys were extremely helpful and then after that we talk to a contractor friend of ours. We would not have known what to ask have we not talked to you both. Sending so much love and my phone is about to go dead unfortunately I love you. Have a great weekend with Mark. Love โค๏ธ Joni

    1. Good evening beautiful Button. Thank you with all my heart. Your words are gracious and mean so much to me. I love singing it makes me feel so deeply as does dancing even alone in the woods. Thank you sweetie and have a blessed and wonderful week. Love you bunches and bunches,

      1. My pleasure. I am thrilled. You made my evening beautiful. Love the song ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿฅฐ๐ŸŒนโค๏ธ๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿฅฐ๐ŸŒนโค๏ธ

      2. I am so glad. Your comment touched my heart beautiful Button.

      1. You are most welcome my friend. This ended up in my pending folder. I donโ€™t know what is going on. Forgive the delayed response. Hugs ๐Ÿค— Joni

      2. Thank you my friend. Have an amazing weekend. I appreciate people understanding some times in WordPress we just miss stuff. I think after so many hours post get put in a pending folder and you never see them in the notification section. I appreciate how kind everyone is about it. Blessings to your family my friend. Love Joni

    1. You are very kind and I appreciate your words very much. I love to sing but have no equipment or anything like that. There are so many talented people who sing and want to be in the business. I am better at my writing and knew that would not be a good lifestyle for me with my beliefs. Thank you again Dawn for your thoughtful support it means a lot, you are such a talented young woman yourself. Love ya โค๏ธ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ’•

      1. You are welcome Joni. I am glad you are following Godโ€™s plans for you. Thank you! Love you too!

  8. John Coyote said it best! Those are the words I was looking for – you have a voice made for jazz! Joni, this is so soulful. I want to pour a glass of wine, light a fire, and play this while I watch the flames โค๏ธ Beautiful!

    1. Thank you Jill. It is something I enjoy. There are so many crazy talented people on YouTube and I donโ€™t play an instrument. Thank you for your generous words. This is something that makes me feel good. Sending you big hugs across our lands. Love you Jill โค๏ธโค๏ธ

    1. Thank you so much, what a kind comment. I sing because it makes me happy. There are so many tremendously talented singers/songwriters out there to listen to but I sure enjoy it. Thank you new friend, and a pleasure to meet you as well. Hugs and Love, Joni

      1. You’re always welcome my new friend.. You’re really a good singer.. And am very glad to meet you friend.. Hugs and Love.๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒท๐Ÿ˜Š

  9. A sweet revisit! You are so gifted dear Joni. And what a sweet melodic voice sending out vibrant poetic feelings! Hope you are enjoying your day!!๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿฎ๐Ÿฎ

    1. You are very kind my friend. Thank you for your thoughtful words regarding my voice. I certainly enjoy singing. I usually do it when I am alone. I am working on a song about the state of our world that once will be a bit more political. Sometimes it is worth while to say how we are feeling. Jazz is a great way to do it. Thank you, my friend, so far my day is a blessed one, hope the same for you, and thank you again so much. Love Joni
